Purley Funeral Directors


Frequently Asked Questions

What should I do when someone dies?

When someone dies you need to get a Medical Certificate of Cause of Death from a doctor, register their death and choose a funeral director to arrange their funeral. The Registration Office will give you a Death Certificate and Certificate for Burial or Cremation (GR021 in Northern Ireland).

How do you arrange a funeral?

You can arrange a funeral by choosing a funeral director who will help you organise all of the details. They can help you decide whether to have a cremation or burial and what type of service to choose, as well as additional options, such as music and flowers. You can find out what happens at a funeral and compare funeral directors on Funeral Guide.

How much does a funeral cost?

The cost of a funeral depends on where you are in the UK and whether you choose a burial or a cremation. Natural burial is becoming increasingly popular, but can often be more expensive than burial in a traditional cemetery. The cost of coffins, flowers, catering and transport also varies a lot. There is also an almost unlimited list of options for personalising a service, such as professional funeral singers or a motorcycle-hearse. You can compare the price of funeral directors on Funeral Guide.

Helen and Karen were informative and thorough in our planning. Kept in touch regularly, were considerate and kind at all times. I would highly recommend Co-op funeralcare  to others.

I cannot praise the service you provided for my mother's funeral highly enough. Christine, at Bromley, was so kind, patient and professional. Her attention to detail was much appreciated. Amanda in your Beckenham branch was exceptionally sensitive and thoughtful when we viewed mum the day before the funeral. On the day of the funeral Sam and his colleagues helped us cope by being so kind, respectful and professional. Maria, the celebrant, was brilliant. I don't know how she did it but when she spoke about mum it was as if she knew her. Contact with your other staff over the phone has also been sympathetic and efficient. My whole family would like to express our thanks to you for making the whole experience uplifting and a celebration of Trixie's life. Many thanks Sheila Baker.

I cannot fault Rouse & Co who provided the funeral service when my father passed away. They provided a very personal service and were very professional and compassionate. Mark was very caring and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. They made our family feel special and I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone who wants a personal and compassionate send off for their loved one.
